Hi all,

I live in Brisbane with family. Brisbane is too hot and not much to do for our lifestyle. I am considering moving to Melbourne and I really appreciate if you can help me with finding the best place in Melbourne to live / buy a house.

Please tell me what are the top 3 suburbs that tick all the boxes below (or at least most).

1- Safety and low crime
2- Close to top schools
3- Affordable house prices ($700k-$1mil max) for a decent house
4- Established areas with good neighborhood (not a snob! but decent community is important for my family to raise a child)
5- Happy to travel a bit for work to CBD but not more than 45-60 minutes
6- Last but not least, a good investment for future to buy a house

I would really appreciate any advice.

yeah, I am in the same case, moving from Bangkok to Melbourne, and I have been advised to rent an apartment in Melbourne at first, and once here, to buy something, being sure of everything before taking a precipitated decision

Definitely rent a house or flat first. Melbourne weather is totally different to Brisbane. For me it was too wet and rainy, but maybe you like that kind of weather. I am now near Sydney and it is great - not too hot, not too cold.

Melbourne is a great city for families. And I think you should contact few real estate agencies to see what will they offer your. Personaly think you should't waste money on rental property. That money you can invest in your new home.
